Experiencing Lake Maggiore in a Mercedes-Benz SL

Belle Epoque and Mountain Roads at Lake Maggiore

Italy’s second largest lake lures with a beautiful Riviera and a mediterranean ambience. Narrow mountain roads contrast with palm-lined shores promenades, Belle Époque villas and English gardens contrast with the archaic-looking villages. This high-contrast tour has a lot to offer and leaves nothing to be desired.

  • Belle Epoque at Lake Maggiore

    Day 1 Isola Bella

    After picking you up from Milan-Malpensa airport, we take you to your hotel on the shores of Lake Maggiore, you can meet your fellow travellers over a pleasant aperitif. In front of the hotel you will find your chrome-flashing Mercedes-Benz SL standing in a row and hear us explaining the easily understandable road book to you before we start our first trip. The first trip is a good way to get to know your Mercedes-Benz. A common dinner on Isola Bella, to which you are driven in style in old wooden boats, rounds the day off.

    Day 2 Centovalli, Ascona and the Lombard shore

    On the second day an unforgettable route awaits you: rugged gorges and lonely mountain valleys in the Valle Cannobina. After crossing the Swiss border into Centovalli in Ticino, you will reach Ascona. On the picturesque promenade along the banks of Ascona you have the opportunity to take a walk and have an extensive lunch. In the afternoon you drive along the western shore road and admire sophisticated lake promenades.

    Day 3 Mottarone and San Giulio

    On the third day you can experience the absolute rallye feeling in Mottarone Preserve: serpentines, intermediate throttle and the unmistakable sound of a classic Mercedes-Benz. You drive along impressive mountain roads up to the 1,490-metre-high Mottarone, from which you look down to Lake Maggiore and Lake d’Orta. The latter becomes your next destination, via winding mountain roads you reach the old town of Orta San Giulio, where you will have enough time for a walk through the picturesque alleys. On the way back to the hotel, you will cross two more nature preserves. A common farewell dinner takes place in a popular old town restaurant in Baveno.

    Day 4 Castel Angera

    In the morning you will visit Castel Angera on the southern shore of Lake Maggiore, which was once home to one of Italy’s most important noble families and which is today a tourist attraction as a stately fortress. From the fortified tower you will enjoy an unforgettable view over the lake. After the visit you drive along the lake shore, past the hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso and on to Laveno. A ferry takes you to the western shore, from where we drive only a short distance to the hotel. In the afternoon you say goodbye to “your” SL and will be brought to the airport by a transfer.

      It was a dream to be invited. Seeing the scenic scenery was just like a James Bond movie!

    2. 5 out of 5


      These couple days have been absolutely a wonderful journey. Day 2 we drove past Mt. Mottarone
      and the drive up there was absolutely gorgeous. And Day 3 we went to Lake Ascona, on the Swiss side,
      and I just don’t want this journey to end at all. Next year, I would love to join the Mille Miglia trip in Italy.

  • Region

    Lake Maggiore

    Lake Maggiore, with its 212.5 square kilometres, lies on the border between Italy and Switzerland. Its west bank is part of the Italian region of Piemont, the eastern shore lies in the Lombardy region and the north part in the Swiss canton of Ticino.

    The second largest lake in Italy, at its deepest point 372 m, extends from the Southern Alps to the edge of the Po valley. The shore of Lake Maggiore is lined with a number of well-known locations – Stresa, Verbania, Ascona and Locarno, to name a few. Dream destinations are also the Borromean Islands in the Gulf of Stresa and the Brissago islands southwest of Ascona.

    Pamper yourself with culinary delicacies and enjoy Lake Maggiore at the wheel of an Alfa Romeo classic car. Which car suits this area and its old Belle Epoque mansions better than these Italian classic cars? Whether in Ascona, home of poets and bohemians, in Stresa or Milan you will be assured of admiring gazes.
